Attorney and former U.S. Army prosecutor Glenn Kirschner said that former President Donald Trump is potentially facing a "five-year felony" over allegations that he took classified national security documents from the White House when he left office last year.
"NARA has identified items marked as classified national security information within the boxes," archivist David Ferriero wrote.
Previously, The New York Times reported that classified documents were included with the records Trump was required to return.
The Washington Post further reported that some of the documents were classified as "top secret.".
Kirschner commented on the scandal during an MSNBC segment on Friday evening, predicting that Trump could face multiple indictments in the near future.
"That's troubling," he added, noting that we can see other examples of individuals being "promptly prosecuted" for less severe violations.
Many other legal experts and former federal law enforcement officials urged the Justice Department to open an investigation into Trump over the classified documents. »
